Ooey. Gooey. Goodness. Gracious. These gluten-free vegan Superfood Fudge Brownies will have you eating “outside the box” and asking “Duncan who?!” With a rich cacao cacophony of flavors, this protein and magnesium-rich recipe is a serious show stopper. Plus, they’re super quick to prepare and are completely raw – no bake, no fake.
Serves 12-14 peeps
4 cups raw pecans, soaked & dehydrated
¾ cups dates, pitted & packed
¾ cups raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon Vitamineral Green or other superfood greens powder
1 teaspoon maca powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon shilajit powder
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon smoked paprika or cayenne
1 teaspoon ground vanilla
¼ cup dried black cherries, goji berries, golden berries or mulberries, reserved
½ cup crushed raw pecans, reserved
In a food processor, process the pecans until slightly chunky and mealy. Do not overprocess into pecan butter. Slowly add the dates while the food processor is running and rock the base of the food processor to combine evenly. Then, add all remaining ingredients, except reserved cherries and pecans, and process again until well combined. Take a glass baking dish (preferably 8X8 size) and gently grease with coconut oil. Add the brownie mixture and fold in the reserved cherries/berries and pecans. Press down with your palms to spread the mixture evenly and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. Cut brownies into squares and serve with warm fudge sauce or non-dairy ice cream. Keeps for up to a week in a covered baking dish in the fridge.
